“At the River” at the Hatch Shell

July 25, 2012

Tonight, we are thrilled to perform our At the River concert at the Hatch Shell on the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. This performance is particularly special to us because it celebrates clean water advocacy and the inspiration that water brings to the musical community.

In 2007, we made the Esplanade our home for our Landmarks Festival at the Shell summer concerts. The breathtaking natural beauty of this green area and the Charles River have provided us with a unique performance space that we are lucky to share with the residents of Boston. Rivers are an essential part of any urban setting, and we are fortunate to have one right in our backyard. Tonight we will celebrate the beautiful river from which we draw our motivation and inspiration to play music for the people of Boston.

Our concert program will feature different musical pieces that capture the beauty of water over time. We will include worldwide favorites, like Johann Strauss II’s On the Beautiful Blue Danube and Duke Ellington’s The River. The orchestra will also perform Symphony No. 3, Rhenish by Robert Schumann and The Moldau by Bedřich Smetana.

The Boston Landmarks Orchestra is proud to partner with more than 20 area advocates for clean and safe water on the occasion of the 40thanniversary of the Clean Water Act. We will host a Clean Water Fair at 6 P.M., where people can visit the different organizations who helped make this concert possible. Our 7 P.M. performance is sure to be a special occasion for the city.
